Anger at the APC’s plans to make Nigeria a one-party state over the Rivers crisis

Posted by

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of trying to eliminate opposition and establish a one-party state in Nigeria, amid the continuing political turmoil in Rivers State.

Despite the body’s advising members against making unguarded statements, it has maintained its commitment to provide steady and competent leadership to safeguard the party’s stability, expansion, and successful management.

Hon. Debo Ologunagba, the PDP’s national publicity secretary, made this known in a Thursday press statement following Wednesday’s NWC emergency meeting.

The organ has assured its members, important stakeholders, and supporters, according to Ologunagba, that its interventions are having the desired effect, especially in relation to the political development in Rivers State.

He assured the people of Rivers State and the rest of the nation that the PDP is still strong and united despite the difficulties they are facing.

According to Ologunagba, the NWC has spoken out against what it sees as leaders’ careless actions and statements meant to discredit important Party organizations.

The NWC went on to warn party leaders to watch out for anything that could violate the PDP Constitution in their words or deeds.

“Despite the efforts by the All Progressives Congress, APC, to eliminate opposition and establish a One-Party State on our nation,” the statement stated, “the NWC under the Acting Chairmanship of Amb. Umar Iliya Damagum remains unwavering in providing steady and effective leadership that ensures the stability, growth, and effective management of interests and corporate integrity of our Party.”
